And there's the Rolling Stone tome that collects all the articles and interviews that appeared over the years in RS - simply called GARCIA, nicely illustrated, and interestingly reveals the rag's lack of attention to the band and Jerry during the '60s - it wasn't until 1973 that they finally did a serious interview with Jerry.

I also read and enjoyed Captain Trips by Sandy Troy (A Biography of Jerry Garcia);

San Francisco Nights: The Psychedelic Music Trip, 1965-1968 by Gene Sculatti

The Dead Book by Hank Harrison (Hank was a friend of my father, and I got to know Hank pretty well - he's all they say he is and is best taken in small doses),

and speaking of zines - readers of Golden Road and Relix may want to check out the 2 issues of the in-depth focus on the SF-Bay Area 60's rock scene called Cream Puff War.
(No relation to me, it's named after the Rosemary Clooney novelty number...)
